He had a brief role in The Bill in 2008, and earlier this year he appeared in EastEnders, playing Tommy Clifford, a character harbouring a guilty secret. His casting as Guy Crouchback in the 1967 adaption of Evelyn Waugh's Sword of Honour trilogy, dramatised by Giles Cooper and directed by Donald McWhinnie, established him as an actor of quality and standing. The first episode filmed following Woodward's heart attack involved his character being severely injured by a KGB bullet, providing Woodward with a chance to rest over several episodes.

On the big screen, Woodward will perhaps be best remembered for his role in the cult horror film The Wicker Man (1973), directed by Robin Hardy. citation needed] While both actors were playing the part of unrelated Technomages, the on-screen chemistry between them was clear. Throughout his career, he appeared in productions in both the West End of London and on Broadway in New York City.

A renowned British actor, Edward Woodward won critical acclaim as a stage and television performer, top-selling recording artist and occasional film actor. The Wicker Man also starred Christopher Lee, branching out from his performances in Dracula films to play Lord Summerisle, and Britt Ekland as the island's goddess of love deflowering young men. In the early 1960s, he was a jobbing actor who made a number of minor TV appearances in supporting roles.

Crouchback was the central character in Waugh's three novels set against the background of Britain's involvement in World War II. Perhaps his most well-known performance came on the small screen when he starred in "The Equalizer" (CBS, 1985-89), a role that earned him a cult following as well as five consecutive Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe Award. Edward Woodward would continue the theme of spycraft in the shadows in his 1980s show “The Equalizer” where he dispensed vigilante justice.Woodward was born in Croydon, then in Surrey, and as a child was bombed out of his home three times during the second world war.

In 1999, Woodward appeared alongside his son Peter in The Long Road, an episode of the Babylon 5 spin-off, Crusade, on which Peter was a regular cast member.Woodward was born on 1 June 1930 in Croydon, Surrey, [1] the only child of parents Edward Oliver Woodward, a metalworker, [2] and Violet Edith Woodward (née Smith). They had two sons: Tim Woodward (1953–2023) and Peter Woodward (born 1956), both of whom became actors, as well as a daughter, the Tony Award-nominated actress Sarah Woodward (born 1963). His vocal ability and acting skill let him make a number of appearances when time allowed on the BBC's Edwardian era music hall programme, The Good Old Days. His initial ambition was to become a journalist, but he settled for working briefly in a sanitary engineer's office. Woodward starred as Police Sergeant Neil Howie in the 1973 cult British horror film The Wicker Man, and in the title role of the 1980 Australian biopic Breaker Morant.

Woodward played the uptight, strongly religious police sergeant, Howie, sent to a remote Scottish island to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a young girl. Following wide experience touring throughout England and Scotland, and a tour of India and Ceylon in Shakespeare and Shaw, Woodward arrived in London in 1955 with Where There's a Will at the Garrick.After making his first professional appearance at the Castle Theatre, Farnham, in 1946, he attracted a loyal following of admirers during his years with the Croydon Repertory Company.
